Social security numbers are in a different category than philosophies about raising a puppy--radically different categories. Rescues and shelters don't need to do credit checks. They do, however, need to know you'll provide a good, loving home. Why is asking about your philosophy of raising a puppy intrusive
I wasn't looking for a puppy at that point. Why should I have to fill out 3 pages worth of puppy questions like.... List your previous puppy-raising and socializing experience with the number, breed and age of puppies you’ve raised and Tell us how long the puppy will be without human supervision during the workday? What is your plan for the puppy during that time?
all stuff like that did was turn me off... Come meet me, visit my home, talk to me about dogs but why waste my time and yours with 3 pages of nonsense that I could fill with total bull and you wouldn't know any better. I was told to fill out the form... and go visit them at a petsmart adoption day and pick out a dog. We did it was total chaos and not a quiet place where I could see if the dog would work with mine. No Thanks!!! Some lady even came over attacked my Buddy's ears even after my husband and I both asked her to be careful he has sensitive ears and then tried to adopt him from me. Really??!!
Instead I looked around for a different rescue which I did and I am totally thankful that I found a good one. I'm not dissing rescues at all. I am totally for rescuing dogs. But you have to find the right one for you.
